Latin Roots Explores The Protest Music of South America
Rachel Faro joins the show to discuss Cancion de protesta. While we had our own period of politically charged songs about the Vietnam War and more in the 60s, Latin American songwriters were creating commentary about the repressive regimes in power there. Rachel Faro shares some of the musicians who put their lives at risk and identifies who she thinks of as the Bob Dylan equivalent of the Latin music world. Plus a great Spotify playlist for you to do some further listening.
